At Last, Ford Brings Electrified Models to Europe

Ford is a leader in hybrids in America, but it has yet to sell the first one in Europe. I took a test drive of an Escape Hybrid in Paris in 2006, and I thought at the time that this model would quickly arrive at dealers everywhere, but that didn’t happen. Similarly, Ford started selling its Focus Electric in the U.S. last year, but Europe is still waiting to see a Ford EV outside of a motor show. So it’s a relief to learn that they’re finally coming.

It’s not exactly logical, because EVs will come before hybrids. The electric Focus will be launched before the end of the year in several European countries. The plug-in hybrid C-Max Energi is expected to come next year, with the conventional hybrid C-Max following in 2015. There’s also some hope for the Fusion Energi, but no definite word.
